Apparently there's some mixup due to a typo..Ford management were under the impression that the AutoExpo is conducted in every 12 years.


Some companies will never learn.

Yeah...Ford didn't participated at Expo. They have introduced Figo and Auto Expo could have helped to give it some exposure in public.

Was anybody able to locate any Armrest being displayed in the accessories section? If yes, please share the details as I will be visiting tomorrow and to save time will visit that stall directly.

Am not sure if Toyota is to be blamed, I feel its the government who is doing a blunder by charging 100% duty to even a hybrid car.

I know a couple of guys who bought a Civic hybrid at almost 20L, there's no dearth of eager buyers wanting to show off their "green" credentials.

Take this way ,why can't toyota make a CKD route or build here to sell prius.
I accept that Goverment should less the import charge for Hybrid.

The sales will surely drop as sharply as initial booking figure would rise... this price is just not sustainable. I know 2 ppl who got the civic hybrid for close to 21-22 lacs but then were cursing their investment!
